With this complex Split will get a sports, entertainment, culture and recreation venue that will activate and reaffirm the northern part of the Split peninsula. The complex achieves a balance between the low-lying main area and the tower’s verticality. The agreement between the horizontal and vertical is in its composition and urban planning set in order to place the location with special importance.

The new building is in giddy proximity to the Dome/O2/North Greenwich Arena, which sets up an unavoidable clash of scale and geometry. The relatively standard programme could have produced a building that could not converse let alone compete with its neighbour. FOA’s design blurs the internal arrangements behind a homogenous façade, much as the Dome does, but in a very different, very confident and curiously complementary way.
